You know the saying: April showers bring May flowers! As much as we l-o-v-e the sunshine, we can appreciate a rainy day now and again — just not too often! Not only does it give us an excuse to lounge around inside watching Lifetime movies, but we also have the opportunity to put together fun, rainy day looks for when we make a mid-afternoon Starbucks run.
As we often do, we turned to some of our favorite style bloggers for some rainy day inspiration. So take a look and check the forecast — spring is officially here!
We love the mix of classy and casual with this stylish look. From the waist up we see an outfit perfect for the office, but the fun red and white polka dot wellies add a quirky touch to the perfectly-polished, all black style. And the tan raincoat and black handbag (much like this Nola top handle bag) tie it all together!
We know we can always count on Atlantic-Pacific for super trendy and glam looks. This printed dress is perfect for a rainy day and adds a little extra coverage with a belted cardigan and trench coat. The look is further accentuated with red rainboots, big pearls, and oversized sunglasses. Bold prints are very in-style this season, so keep a lookout for something unique!
Who said your rainy day look has to incorporate rain boots? Any boots will do, really! This style incorporates a number of layers, which is perfect for the chill of early spring. Find a fun skirt and wear it with a flowy top, jacket, tights, ankle boots, and a leather handbag. This Larissa shoulder bag closely resembles the one sported above, don’t you think?
No fashion faux pas here! Three haute trends for Spring 2013 include emerald, black & white, and stripes. She’s got all the bases covered! Completely in love with anything black-and-white striped, we are left swooning over her chiffon blouse, jeggings, and emerald wellies. And we love the style and versatility of her bag! This Lucille buckle satchel is our similar pick.
Definitely a style for late spring, we love the rocker edge of this outfit! This lovely lady paired shorts and an oversized black and white cardigan with a leather moto jacket (leather is another hot trend this season!), boot socks, and rain boots. Looks like she’s ready to take on any downpour with some sass!
